Music Forever!

April 14, 2013 at 4:31 PM

It's 10:40am right now. I'm in the middle of my walk, and I've just now realized something I probably have before: music is the best thing in the world. I'm listening to a Doctor Who soundtrack for seasons 1 and 2, and as I listen I'm thinking just how amazing it is to hear the BBC National Orchestra of Wales play such sweet sounds to my waiting ears. I hear a grand piano softly tapping octave keys at the right side of the piano, backed by beautiful sustained violin high notes. I hear a wonderful male singer, a pops song backed by an orchestra and guitar. I hear timpani pounding with a full chanting choir. Murray Gold is amazing! (and still at work with Season 7.) Then, of course, I apply these sounds to the show, but that's not the point. Music is amazing; orchestral music, and probably many of us here at agree (?) is best. Music will be with us forever. Whether it be Baroque, Classical, Romantic, TV, film... Listening to a grand section of violins play with the timpani, flutes, and horns is awesome, and I can't wait to do that with my violin for three amazing upcoming concerts. I'll just have to practice! :)

Okay, my hands are freezing typing this. Time to head home and enjoy the rest of the day. Readers, please do that too!

Happy music-making!
